STEP 10: Manage implementation


By Tom Wood / Updated: 28 Nov 2019

After SUMP adoption, the implementation phase starts. As the Sustainable Urban Mobility Planinfo-icon is a strategic document, it provides a sound framework for these activities, but it does not specify in detail how each action will be implemented and what needs to be procured. These often complex implementation tasks are usually not performed by the core ‘SUMP team’, but by the responsible technical departments. Therefore, a good handover to technical implementers and effective coordination of all implementation activities by the core team is important to ensure a coherent approach. For example, while procurement of goods and services is a standard process in any public administration, tendering innovative products or ‘green procurement’ often requires the attention of the core team to ensure successful introduction of these novel products and procurement approaches.
